Republican Mike Domino secured his seat on the Southold Town Board of Trustees, defeating Democratic Challenger Jeri Woodhouse 5,826 to 4,038 after the polls closed Tuesday night and all 19 districts were accounted for.
Domino has served on the board, which is meant to serve as a watchdog over the health of local waterways, since being appointed this past January, filling the seat formerly held by Southold Town Councilwoman Jill Doherty. The Southold resident is a former science teacher.
Woodhouse, a resident of Orient and the owner of A Taste of the North Fork in Southold, said she felt like she ran a great race.
"I feel like I ran a great race with terrific support, I'm looking forward to more women getting involved in politics locally," she said.
Domino was not immediately available for comment.
